"We wanted to build an awesome platform that people wanted to use every day and we wanted to grow that platform before focusing too much on monetization".
"We now have 150 million users, so timing felt right".
THQ and Deep Silver are the first two companies to pledge their support for this new games distribution platform (per a report by Polygon), and others will likely follow suit in the coming weeks.
Discord Nitro, a $4.99 monthly subscription service, gives users perks like customized Discord tags, animated emojis, and higher upload limits. Those who are selected will gain access to the new Nitro Games library, along with having the ability to buy games from the new storefront.
Some new titles are also available for individual purchase already, including Hollow Knight and Banner Saga 3.

It may not be the juggernaut that Steam now is, but the potential is there. Discord isn't looking to offer every single game out there, and will instead focus on curating a storefront of specific recommendations. The feature is now being tested among a small batch of Canadian users, so their feedback will likely shape the Discord Store's development moving forward.
Simply called the "Store", Discord's marketplace will be accessible by visiting the app's home page and selecting the appropriate menu option. Likewise, its "First on Discord" initiative is created to give users access to 90-day exclusives, and a universal library. "It's also enabled websites like itch.io to become hotbeds of indie game content, where the user base may be lighter but so is the cut taken from revenue, as decided via open revenue sharing". That depends on how well its curated selection of games is received. That is to say that it will allow anyone to purchase games at retail prices.
Discord's gaming store seems like the future of its business.
The company wants to build a quality list of available games, and is even planning on having timed exclusives. This will also serve as a discovery service that will promote games with a boutique feel according to the announcement. They'll be up for grabs for a short period of time first on Discord, and then they'll be released elsewhere. As of today, it has entered a closed beta for 50,000 Canadian Discord users, though they have to be subscribers of Discord Nitro in order to qualify.
